Singing lessons for all ages taught by professional singer

I am a trained opera singer with 12 years of teaching experience as a choir conductor and vocal coach, and I continue to perform on the operatic and concert stage. The focus of this class is to learn healthy singing techniques which include breathing, support, posture, and vocalisation, I am happy to work with lyric, classical/pop and musical theatre repertoire - the fundamental techniques of singing are the same and we will be working towards establishing a good foundation so that you can understand your own instrument better.

The language of instruction will be mainly in English, but I am experienced in singing in English, German, Italian and French, so don't feel restricted by way of language as well. No worries if you are an absolute beginner - there is no age/gender limit or pre-requisite. Everyone has a voice, and I would love to help you find yours!

I am a first-language English speaker, with a bachelor degree in law from Singapore, a Masters Degree in Music (Distinction) and Advanced Postgraduate Diploma (Distinction) from Manchester, UK. I currently live in and sing with the opera studio in Biel, Switzerland, where I myself continue to further my skills and actively perform as a musician.

About Me

Hi! I'm a firm believer that the experience of singing, and finding one's voice, helps us to know ourselves and the world we live in better. To speak, sing, and communicate well is a something that everyone is capable of, it is a worthwhile journey that is sure to bring much joy.

I am originally from Singapore, and I trained to be a lawyer for my bachelor studies years ago. However, I had always been very passionate about music and was actively involved in performing and teaching it. Whether in operas, classical recitals, choir concerts, recordings, a cappella and musical theatre singing, I was fortunate to have experienced it all. Thus, although I qualified to be a lawyer in 2013, I decided to pursue my passion for singing full-time, and I have since completed my Advanced Postgraduate Diploma and Masters in Music Performance in the UK, both with Distinction. I am currently studying at the Swiss Opera Studio in Switzerland, and I continue to perform internationally as an opera singer and on the concert platform. I myself continue to take lessons and learn - for singing is a lifelong refining - but I am dedicated to sharing what I know with anyone who might be interested. Do join me if you are interested in finding your voice! All it takes is a small step of faith. :)

I am currently in my final year of training at the French gymnasium of Bienne and I teach linguistics courses for students who are still in compulsory school. The subjects I teach are English and French. I always adapt my method of work according to the student, I also do my best to understand the best explanations I give him and try to motivate the student to the maximum. Being a former student of mandatory training myself, I can still remember all the difficulties I encountered during my compulsory schooling and because of this I think I will be able to understand the difficulties that your child might encounter. in turn and therefore help him in a suitable way and with joy!

Ruben
Classical singing lessons for all ages and all levels
La musique est un vecteur de communication puissant et quasi immédiat. Dès qu’on prend le temps de l’écouter ou, encore mieux, de la pratiquer, elle a un impact important dans notre vie quotidienne : le développement de l’écoute et de la sensibilité du monde et des personnes qui nous entourent et surtout la confiance de transmettre ce que l’on a sur le cœur en public. Le chant est peut-être ce qui se rapproche de cette sensation car c’est le corps qui doit travailler pour la production du son et de l’expression que l’on a envie de partager. Il est quand même parfois difficile de comprendre comment faire vibrer ce corps parce qu’on n’a pas l’instrument dans les mains et c’est ici que je serais heureux de vous aider ! Chanteur de formation classique depuis mon enfance et actuellement étudiant en Master de pédagogie à la Haute Ecole des Arts de Berne, je propose des cours de chant afin de vous transmettre les outils nécessaires à une pratique saine de l’instrument, de partager l’aventure passionnante qu’est de trouver sa voix et surtout de vous aider à épanouir votre expressivité pour prendre d’autant plus de plaisir à faire de la musique. Il n’y a pas d’âge pour commencer à chanter et je propose des cours pour tous les niveaux donc n’hésitez pas à sauter dans le bain ! Bien qu’issu d’une formation classique, je suis également ouvert et serais même enthousiaste à travailler d’autres styles. Les cours auront lieu dans des locaux à Bienne, Berne et éventuellement Lausanne mais si vous disposez d’un piano et si vous vous sentez plus à l’aise chez vous. Ruben Monteiro

With me you will have the opportunity to improve considerably in the area that you have gaps but especially to get the best grades in your class in this area because I raises the bar very high. You will then realize the real abilities you have in the matter in which you have always thought you were execrable. My classes will adapt to the person I teach because I have great flexibility. I can not therefore give a precise description as to the way I will give the course or its course. But one thing is certain, you will only have excellent grades in subjects that have always been a problem for you. I promise you!
